Metropolis editors selected the top designs of NeoCon 2016 out of hundreds products that were entered. Parentesit Wall Panel, designed by Lievore Altherr Molina, is one of the 35 #MetropolisLikes award winners and received a custom award delivered in person at Arper showroom during NeoCon.
#MetropolisLikes is a viral awards program, organised by Metropolis magazine that celebrates exhibitors onsite at NeoCon for designs that further the design at all scales conversation and broadcasted live across Metropolis's social media audiences.
Parentesit is a collection of decorative modular wall panels that offers comfort for contemporary shared spaces. The bold, graphic forms are available in three shapes — a circle, a square or an oval — that can be further customized with the addition of a speaker or ambient light, to create a visual element that is as functional as it is modern. The collection is now complemented by the Freestanding version, a modular stand alone system for concentration or quiet conversation in shared workspaces or collaborative environments.
Catifa 46 – New Edition and Parentesit Freestanding, designed by Lievore Altherr Molina, received the HIP Honoree Award during NeoCon 2016.
Interior Design's HiP at NeoCon Awards is a recognition program Honoring Industry People and Innovative Products. This initiative, unique within the design world, honors commercial industry pioneers and achievement in design solutions and product applications.
Originally designed in 2004 for contract and big space use, Catifa 46 retains the same slim profile, but, new for 2016, will be available in an updated range of a soft yet complex palette: rosé, petrol, yellow, ivory and smoke. Any combination of these refreshed colors can be paired or contrasted with customizable seat pad, or interpreted as a monochrome statement. Selections can be further amplified or muted by fabric texture, shell finish and colored base options.
